Pop star joins world’s premier digital music marketplace
Justin Timberlake has become the newest member of Timbaland’s Beatclub, the super-producer’s new global marketplace for music makers. Beatclub, founded by Timbaland and his long-time manager and business partner Gary Marella, is the premier destination for exclusive beats, loops and sounds from the world’s top producers and musicians. Timberlake plans to contribute to the platform and connect with other music makers.
Other notable Beatclub members include Mike Dean, Scott Storch, Federico Vindver and Larance Dopson, all of whom have also collaborated with Timberlake in the past, as well as Tainy, Tommy Brown, J Cole, Boogz, Jozzy, Mike WiLL Made-It, Cash Money AP and hundreds of others who have been invited to join Beatclub before its public launch later this year. With Timberlake joining the ranks, Beatclub cements itself as a community of elite creators offering their sounds to aspiring artists around the world. Beatclub is expected to launch later this year.
“Justin is without a doubt one of the most inspiring song writers and artists in the world,” states Timbaland. “Having him join Beatclub is like welcoming an old friend home. I’m thrilled that music creators are going to have the ability to actually collaborate with Justin and me when we launch later this year.”
“Beatclub is positioned to become the most creator-friendly music marketplace in the landscape,” adds Beatclub Co-founder Gary Marella. Unlike similar platforms, Beatclub allows creators to keep 100% of their master and publishing rights,100% of their revenue, and gives them the ability to customize licenses, allowing the creator to set their own terms and fees. This empowering, creator-centered model has attracted hundreds of elite producers, song writers and artists who have been invited to join the platform. When Beatclub launches later this year, creators globally will be selling beats, loops, sounds, a capellas and demos on the platform.
